In honor of MARS300/CHURCH OF MARS – three historic concerts held by Thirty Seconds to Mars on Dec 2011 – ALL ECHELON HELP is launching a Global Assault on Hunger on Friday, December 7 and Saturday, December 8, 2012.

The Mission is simple we asked the Echelon whatthe band’s fans are known as – from around the world to create teams of people to either donate their time and or food to their local food pantry, soup kitchen or food bank.   As food prices soar and water becomes more scares the amount of people suffering from hunger is astounding, which is why we asked the ECHELON Family to get involved! 

“According to the United Nations World Food Progamme, hunger is the world’s No. 1 Health Risk, more people die of hunger every year than those with AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis combined.  With such a sense of solidarity between the Echelon, I knew they would be eager to help combat this.”  stated Anaëlle Salem founder All Echelon Help. “Our goal is to help people in need and raise awareness about World Hunger.”

ALL ECHELON HELP LAUNCHES ECHELON GLOBAL ASSAULT ON HUNGER 10.10.2012

In honor of MARS300/CHURCH OF MARS, we are launching a Global Assault on Hunger on Friday & Saturday, December 7 & 8, 2012. As food prices soar and water becoming more scarce the amount of people suffering from hunger is astounding, which is why we are asking the ECHELON Family to get Involved!

There are several ways for the Echelon to let the world know that there is no FAMILY MORE POWERFUL ON THE PLANET THAN OURS. It’s also a great way for those who can’t afford to donate monetary funds to instead donate their time. We’d like this to be a group outing and or effort but if that isn’t possible you alone can make a difference, remember that it takes just one.

OUR MARS MISSION

1. WHAT WE NEED… A serious commitment from you that you are participating in this.
2. As an individual you can volunteer at a local soup kitchen or food pantry for a couple of hours. Find one in your area they are always looking for help. If you can’t give up some time, then bring a bag of non-perishable food to either source above.
3. For groups there needs to be a one or two team Captains for each Country and or State
4. It’s up to the Captains to find a soup kitchen and or food pantry and organize people.
5. Find out what they most need if it’s donations or non-perishable items.
6. Once this is established pick a day that work’s best for everyone, either Friday or Saturday.
7. Get as many volunteers as you can Echelon or not, ask your friends, family, classmates, professors, co-workers, everyone you know to volunteer or donate non-perishable items.
8. If you are delivering Bags or Boxes of food draw the Triad’s or Glyphs on them.
9. If you are volunteering wear your MARS Gear
10. Take lots of pictures and we will upload them to our FB page for the world to see.

DEADLINE ON SUBMITTING YOUR PARTICIPATION IS THE 31ST OF OCTOBER. COME ON LET’S SEE SOME ECHELON CAPTAINS!
